Last Thursday was my birthday (June 2). It was also the day of our senior community’s first variety show in many years. We had some real talent! Some of the acts were very funny, including the Walker Sisters, who ended the show. This got a lot of laughs from the audience!
I was in two dance numbers, comprised of some of the members of our Zumba class.
My brother-in-law sang in a barbershop quartet. He’s the one on the far left, with a mustache.
Then, yesterday, we hosted a birthday party for him and me, which was also a smashing success! We both have early June birthdays, and this was a landmark birthday for both of us. The whole independent living community was invited and we also had family members. We served hors d’oeuvres and cake.
My nephew played the keyboard. We received SOOO many cards and edible gifts (chocolate, primarily), although we didn’t ask anyone to give us anything. It was a lot of fun! Since yesterday, I’ve received calls from residents to thank me for hosting this party.
